    I had a distaster in my Studio, my nephew accidentally knock my Clarity M Stereo unit off of my Desktop and this pulled the MicroUSB Socket out of the back of the unit, of course it no longer can communicate with my Apple Power Mac, the display and everything seems O.K. Can this be repaired

      Dale_M Yes most likely, please go to the Support tab and select a Service ticket so we can advise the nearest repair centre for non warranty repair.

        tobyshark Dale, it's taken 3 days so far of me waiting for an initial response from your service team about a non-warranty repair (still nothing). Is there a list of service centres in the UK or authorised repairers - or even a list of companies that can repair digital audio devices? - I'm stuck in a limbo, not know if I should just cut my losses and buy a new sound card, I'm trying to be a little sustainable though - but just getting a simple contact for a repairer shouldn't take three days. can you help?

      PhutneyBuilder4533 Dale, I too am waiting for a response from the service, is there anything else I can do the get this device repaired, not impressed at all, some kind of feedback would be good, I didn't expect the Hermes treatment though.

    Hi there. 

    The encoder in my studiokonnekt 48 remote does not work precise anymore and two leds on the »ring« are broken. 
    Are there spare parts or at least technical specifications for the encoder an dthe leds available? Or is there still a repair service? 

    Thank you!

    I would like to ask about Clarity M Stereo's compatibility with macOS 10.7.5. I cannot install the latest software and I think the problem is that the latest software is not compatible with an old version of macOS).

    Is there any way to download the old version of the ‘Clarity M Stereo Plug-in macOS Mac’ like 1.0.x which is compatible with macOS 10.7(Lion)?

      PedroRodrigues Hi JMJMJM please consider that you are referring to a OSX released in 2011 so I would not advise your to interface the unit is that OSX version and use at least version macOS 10.13 High Sierra. Thank you

    Hello there,

    The headphone jack [ upper/switching ] is broken. Could you please help me locate the correct part so my technician can have it installed.

    Link to a site selling the part would be appreciated. Ideally I'd like to order directly from your parts department.

    From a picture [ ]   it looks like this is a double stacked (2units) stereo, switching, through hole ,1/4" jack

    Your prompt help would be much appreciated.

    Where can I find presets and installers for my Clarity M? Are there any recent updates like a Netflix preset?

    I vaguely remember an option to get additional presets but I cannot find anything online and anything out there is well over 2 years old.

    With the loudness war coming back around again as we mix music for streaming and film for Netflix a lot of us Clarity users are praying for new presets while we use the current metering plugins that are all up to date. I hope TC doesnt forget us.

      PedroRodrigues Hi, derekbrin they can be downloaded from the product page on
      Please note that Factory presets 1-5, which normally cannot be altered from Clarity M but can be edited, moved or deleted when connected to a computer.

    Having some trouble making this work.

    Clarity M >>>stock cable d sub fanout #1 cable to BNC to XLR adapter (as stated in manual)>>>connected to 1. mackie dl32r AES out, and 2. Aphex Compellor AES out. Signal present at outputs but not apparent at Clarity meter. (I have not confirmed signal is at the AES output but assume it would be on both devices)

    I see metering at about 20-30db less than expected. (It may be just noise? I do not have a way to monitor the AES outputs of the mackie and compellor) Peaks around -35db. Although Im running a -12LUFS signal out the analog outputs of both devices. (mackie and compellor)

    > On the mackie I was not able to get lock when I adjusted input to AES1 on the clarity. Never locked.

    > on the Compellor, lock didnt happen for a while, although I was new to connecting to AES and it may have been user error in selecting AES1 in the sys prefs.)

    I am using the adapter stated in the manual. I am using the stock fan out cable. Nothing else is connected other than power to the clarity. I have used this unit with Optical sp/dif and toslink with success. (analog RCA to AD converter to clarity). I have also tried AES out of a x32 without success. Pls comment if you have ANY troubleshooting ideas!!! Thank you!!!!!!

    Any help apreciated!!!

    thank you!

      PedroRodrigues Hi Brad have you tried specific AES 50 cables on the case of the Mackie as the AES50 is transmitter at higher frequencies than the one supported via a XLR cable? Are you using the Neutrik NA2FBNC adapter to bridge the BNC connection with XLR connection present on the Sub D cable? Have you selected the digital input source for AES on the Clarity M?
      • January 15, 2021
    • bradp015
      bradp015 -- I'm using the cable provided by TC electronics.
      -- I am using the Neutrik adapter to bridge the BNC connection with XLR connection present on the D sub cable That is provided in the clarity box. The fan out cable.
      -- I have selected the AES one, AES two, AES three, and optical choices on the clarity.
      Thank you for your ideas

      • Clarity M running in stereo via AES XLR adapter connector not working
        PedroRodrigues Hi bradp015 can you confirm that when you select the digital input, you are selecting the correct channels? The options are AES 1, 2, 3, 1-3 (5.1 surround).
        • January 18, 2021
    • bradp015
      bradp015 thank you Pedro!!!
      When i select the dig channels i can see on the display AES1, AES2,AES3 etc....
      How long does it take for the clarity to lock to the digital input?
      Does it auto select the sample rate/bit depth?
      The manual isnt very specific about it all..
      thank you for your help!!!

      • Clarity M running in stereo via AES XLR adapter connector not working
        PedroRodrigues It should not take long to lock on to the input signal. Can you please provide details on the signal inputting on the Clarity M? Thank you
        • January 19, 2021
    • bradp015
      bradp015 The device is a Aphex Compellor with AES out. The XLR to BNC adapter to the tc elec included cable assembly fan out with D sub is connected to the clarity. Signal is a commercial song playing thru the mackie dl32R going to the compellor. The analog outs of the comopellor is routed to a tricaster video switcher.

    Dear TC Electronic Team, 

    I' recently bought the clarity m stereo and I really like it so far. Nevertheless the spectrum analyzer is too compressed in my opinion. For me, the spectrum is the the most important tool in production/mixing phase. Is there any consideration for an future update on "optional" expanding of the analyzer? This would definetely fulfill my dream and I believe a lot of users or potential buyers would love this feature. Otherwise I'm gonna have to consider if I really need this device on long term. 

    Also a tilt setting for the spectrum analyzer and an optional RMS and crest factor readout would be amazing! 

    Best wishes Johannes

      PedroRodrigues Hi Johannes, please be aware that any updates on the unit and the respective plug in is present on the products page that you can access by following the link below: Please also consider that regarding the RTA, this tool allows a individual band zoom that allows you to pinpoint exact frequencies allowing any frequencies to be easily identified and adjusted, I understand its not a full screen or even a more expanded view but still allows a detail working environment. In Regard to RMS and crest factor please consider that the Clarity M is a Loudness Meter and offers the most used Loudness meters, therefor when it comes to the RMS meters and the crest factor, these are based respectively on PEAK meters and RMS meters and are effectively outside the operating scope of the Clarity M, that is exclusively a Loudness Meter. Thank you

    Hello - My level pilot creates a lot of static when i turn it now. What product should I use to alleviate?

    • SebastianRobertson
      WilliamR Hello Sebastion, I would recommend taking it to a service technician and have them spray the potentiometer with some contact cleaner. This should clear up any build-up that may be causing the static when you physically turn the knob.
